Sprocket Rocket Fisheyes


This is just a quick little trick to get yourself some more fisheye shots in your life.

Another real easy one. You just take your favorite fisheye accessory lens and place that junk right onto the lens of the Sprocket Rocket. You have to just sort of hold the fisheye lens right onto the clear surface of the rocket. Take your picture as normal, When you get the negatives back you will find a little miracle. I have included 3 different fisheye effects in the gallery.

The mammoth glass fisheye Holga lens makes the largest fisheye area causing the film to miss the very top and bottom of the image. The LC-A magnetic accessory gives you a perfect circle right in the film with delicious sprocket holes included. The door spy small fisheye gives that wacky double image type image where you have the fisheye in the middle and then a dark ring and then more fun. All the images are taken in exactly the same spot, same exposure, same film, same everything. It’s my yard actually. Just for fun I’ve included a couple more fun ones of drag queens and Nevada, you know just a regular week.

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
